Choir brings Christmas cheer throughout region

Talented singers at Rydal Penrhos have been spreading some Christmas cheer across a number of sites across the region this week.

The choir, which consisted of both prep and senior pupils, took part in two special carol singing sessions across three venues on Monday, December 17.

Shoppers at the Victoria Centre in Llandudno were greeted with a variety of festive carols on the tour’s first stop, where the group were also raising money for charity via collection boxes.

This included a stunning rendition of the Mariah Carey hit ‘All I want for Christmas’ by Lower Sixth Form pupil Zahra Shamsi, before the contingent moved on to Merton Place Residential Home in Colwyn Bay.

During their second stint, the group sang various carols including Little Donkey and 12 days of Christmas, with Arthur Hind, Darcie Harker-Weston, Hannah Davies and Urdd National Eisteddfod winner Tegid Goodman-Jones also lending their support with outstanding solo efforts.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “This is something we have done for a number of years now and it was another fantastic way to bring some Christmas cheer to the community.

“I would like to thank each member of the choir for their attitude, dedication and commitment to what was a tiring day for them, but they handled themselves impeccably and hopefully got a lot out of the experience themselves.”
